University of Vaasa

The Annual Symposium of Computer Science 2024 will be held at the University of Vaasa from 10 to 16 June 2024.

The theme of the event is digitalisation of critical infrastructures. Critical infrastructures comprise structures and services essential in the functioning of activities of society. Such structures are energy, water supply, and health care, for example. Digitalisation means development of activities in the way they depend on information technologies. Digitalisation of critical infrastructures strengthens activities, and it is possible to offer new services such as smart meters and Kanta-service. The other side of digitalisation is the increase of vulnerabilities: Cyberattacks are targeted towards digital services and cyber-physical plants and components. If these attacks succeed the plants and systems may stall.

The keynote speakers will raise vulnerabilities and opportunities of digital society. We will also publish the dissertation thesis and master’s thesis of the year. We will also have small conferences for researchers to publish their results.

The event is bilingual. Main speeches are in Finnish but the slides are in English. The conference part is in English.
